  This computer is a HP Pavilion dv2000. The video board is NVIDIA
MCP67M. The screen resolution is 1280x800. It is a generic PnP

  I'm not too worried, as I downloaded the CD to install on another
different computer. I was just trying to preview it.

You may need to run with the vesa driver. I'm not familiar with running the live CD but you may need to specify the vesa driver at boot.

With a Compaq Presario F700, it does not work with either the nv or nouveau driver so the vesa needed used. I now run the binary nvidia driver which works relatively decent, but the vesa driver let me get the GUI running initially.
